Stable Release Channel

The official (stable) version of TbSync is hosted on addons.thunderbird.net (a.k.a. ATN) and you can install it by simply searching for "TbSync" in the Thunderbird Add-On Manager.

Beta Release Channel

I also maintain a beta release channel hosted on my own server, which includes the latest features not yet released to ATN. Since it is not possible to mix beta releases and stable releases of the different TbSync modules, you must install all (!) XPI modules found in the /beta subfolder.

Save each XPI file to disk and install them in the Thunderbird add-on manager: Click on the gear icon and select "install from file":

At the end, it should look like this:

I suggest to restart Thunderbird after all modules have been installed.

Geting updates via the Beta Release Channel

The modules will update themselves as usually once per day, but not from ATN but from my own server. You can enforce an update by selecting "check for updates" from the gear menu:
